A baby boy abandoned in the bush rescued

A three-day-old baby boy abandoned in a bush has been rescued at Moree, a fishing community in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese District in the Central Region, Ghana.

“A resident heard the cry of the baby on his way to fetch water but id not pay attention because he thought the baby was with his mother,” according to Adom News.

The baby was still crying on his return and he decided to get close and see what was happening.

“I found the baby wrapped in a polythene and dumped under a plantain tree. I rushed home to get a cloth to wrap the baby and informed the chief who also invited the police,” he narrated.

The Mputuhene of Moree, Nana Otwedom Okufuo II, together with the police rushed the baby to the Moree Health Center for treatment.

He has since appealed to parents, especially the mother of the baby to own up for them to see how best they can support her.

He also used the occasion to appeal to teenagers, especially girls not to engage in pre-marital affairs which could result into unplanned pregnancies thereby affecting their education.
